Older adults with dementia exhibit financial ‘symptoms’ up to six years before diagnosis — ScienceDaily

A new study led by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Federal Reserve Board of Governors found that Medicare beneficiaries who go on to be diagnosed with dementia are more likely to miss payments on bills as early as six years before a clinical diagnosis.

The study also found that beneficiaries diagnosed with dementia who had a lower educational status missed payments on bills beginning as early as seven years before a clinical diagnosis as compared to 2.5 years prior to a diagnosis for beneficiaries with higher educational status.

The study, which included researchers from the University of Michigan Medical School, also found that these missed payments and other adverse financial outcomes lead to increased risk of developing subprime credit scores starting 2.5 years before a dementia diagnosis. Subprime credit scores fall in the fair and lower range.

The findings, published online November 30

UCF CREATE’s Work with Children Featured in Pompeii Exhibit at Orlando Science Center

Visitors to the international Pompeii exhibit currently running at the Orlando Science Center (OSC) will get to see frescos from the city buried under ash — as well as frescos made by first, second, and third graders living in neighborhoods around downtown Orlando.

Through the UCF Center for Research and Education in Arts, Technology, and Entertainment (CREATE)’s Extended Classroom Experience program, three classes from Lake Eola Charter School learned about the art and science of making frescos, a painting technique common in ancient Italy that involves plaster and pigment.

The new 10,000 square foot immersive exhibit at the OSC opened earlier this month and will wrap up in January 2021. “Pompeii: the Lost City” provides a look at the archaeological site destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. From interactive mechanical devices to artifacts from the time and an erupting volcano display, the exhibition captures the
